About Special Programs

  • The cornerstone federal legislation for the education of students with disabilities is the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). IDEA explains how students with disabilities will access a free appropriate public education.

    At the state level, Chapter 392-172A of the Washington Administrative Code requires special education students have access to the general education curriculum in order to meet the educational standards of the school district.

    The Grandview School District recognizes students whose disabilities adversely impact educational performance and who require specially designed instruction have potential for improving educational performance when they receive special education and related services tailored to fit their needs.
